The cottages are equipped with kitchens and a BBQ area, and are popular with both beginners and advanced outdoor enthusiasts, who can enjoy their stay in a variety of ways.
The owner, who is fluent in English, is of course an advanced outdoorsman. The incredibly cute dog that lives there will aso run out to greet you when you arrive. More information about Lodge Tandem available here.

The scenery that unfolds in front of you as you watch the owner’s skill at the wheel is breathtaking!
Put your seatbelt on tight and hold on, as you go for a wild ride!
Up in the Appi Highlands, an ancient beech forest was cut down, but then naturally grew back, becoming what is called a secondary beech forest. When you look up at these beautiful trees, you can really feel the life force that runs through them.
Take a deep breathe and smell the crisp clean fragrance of the forest as you feel the sunlight filtering through the gaps between the leaves high above.
Visit them All! Discover a Variety of Unique Bathing Experiences Unlike Anything You’ve Seen Before!
There are many different types of hot springs to choose from. It’s up to you to decide which one you want to enjoy. It would be a waste to visit only one! Most hot springs in Japan are sulfurous. Hachimantai is no exception, and has sulfur hot springs as well. Guests can enjoy both the unique smell and atmosphere. Don’t forget to use a wet towel on your head to regulate your body temperature in the hot spring baths.
Great routes for cyclists of all levels of experience!
There are routes for everyone in Hachimantai, whether you’ve never even touched a road bike before or you’re a world-class cyclist! And we’ll match you with the route that’s right for you!
In particular, the Expert Course is recommended for advanced cyclists, as it is included in the Hachimantai Hill Climb Race Course. Pedal out into the wilderness of Hachimantai! Get information about the differences in elevation and relay spots where you can take a break and do some sightseeing. Information on bike rental stores, power lunches, etc. are also really useful!
Soft-serve ice cream was born in the United States, but grew up in Japan.
Japanese soft-serve really has evolved in some delicious ways! Each area of Japan seems to have its own special type of soft-serve ice cream, using not only fruits but also vegetables and sake.
Of course Hachimantai also has its own special flavors! Taste ice cream made with wild grapes or spinach – only in Hachimantai!
Now is the perfect time to visit Goshiki Pond in Hachimantai! While it changes color throughout the year and thus warrants multiple visits, if you were only going to see it once, now would be the time! Around late August and early September, just after the end of the rainy season in Japan, the pond is at its most radiant. The bright azure color of the water right now is further accentuated by the red clay that surrounds the pond. Its location right next to another scenic lake, this one not augmented by subterranean minerals and thus normal (though beautiful) in color, makes the special character of Goshiki Pond even more pronounced!
Traveling through Hachimantai in a rental car with your family? Great idea! If you know to do that, you probably already know about the Salad Farm- a rather expansive area with all kinds of great activities and food to enjoy! Whether you’d like to buy house plants, create your own “moss ball” with a plant growing out of it, pick fresh strawberries, relax in a cafe, or or meet the cutest Alpacas that you’ve ever seen – the Salad Farm is the place! Another of the facilities were renovated recently, and there’s a large new garden area with ponds, all kinds of flowers, and great views of the surrounding mountains. And don’t miss the chance to try their delicious gelato!
